Stagecoach North East employees in South Shields are joining depots across the north east and gearing up to take part in this year’s National Customer Service Week from 5-9 October.
The company will celebrate the national campaign with a morning event for passengers on the X34 service at Harton Nook bus stop on Monday 5 Oct and Friday 9 Oct from 9.30am-4pm, where breakfast goodies and giveaways will be handed out to commuters.
National Customer Service Week is run by the Institute of Customer Service and its aim is to raise awareness of customer service and the vital role it plays in successful business practice and the growth of the UK economy.
The most recent National Bus Satisfaction Survey by consumer watchdog Transport Focus showed that, across the North East, 9 out of 10 bus passengers were satisfied or very satisfied with their service.* In addition, Stagecoach was one of the best rated bus companies in the country by people with disabilities.
During National Customer Service Week, Stagecoach North East employees will be highlighting the importance of continuing to deliver good customer service day in, day out for passengers. The theme of the week across Stagecoach is ‘Rolling out the red carpet every day’.
Stagecoach North East Managing Director Phil Medlicott said: “Delivering good customer service is central to our business – our customers are at the heart of everything we do and it is absolutely essential that we provide a good, consistent service that is in line with what they, quite rightly, expect.
“Our team of employees has helped ensure we already offer high standards of customer service but we know we can get better and we will continue to work hard to improve even further.
“It’s great to see so many of our staff getting involved in Customer Service Week. However, we are well aware that we need to deliver high standards of customer service on a daily basis and we are fortunate to have a team of employees who work hard to do just that.”
